View my UQ Researcher Profile

Daphne holds a PhD from the Australian National University in the field of Interdisciplinary Cross-cultural Research that explores representations of Indigenous knowledge in south-eastern Australia. She also holds an MA and a BLitt (with merit) from the ANU both of which focus on ethnobotanical and other environmental knowledge of Pintupi/Luritja people in Central Australia. Professional interests led to a Graduate Certificate in Applied Science - Cultural Heritage Management (UC) in 2003. Originally, Daphne graduated with a BA from the ANU followed by a Graduate Diploma of Education (secondary).

As a Research Fellow at the Aboriginal Environments Research Centre, Daphne is involved in land management and social policy projects as well as graduate student supervision.
